“Color of Life 2nd Season," a video in which voice actress Hanamori Yumiri makes you feel as if she is your best friend “andamp;rdquo;, has been released. This video, "Color of Life 2nd Season," is the second installment of the "Color of Life" promotional video that was released at the launch of the “ATH-SQ1TW” completely wireless earphones in October 2020. This time, not only Hanamori Yumiri, but also Ono Yuuki, Sakura Ayane, Enoki Junya, Kimura Ryohei, and Furukawa Makoto were used to create a video that expresses the story behind the earphones with their voices. Each of them plays a role in six different situations, including "Date with boyfriend" and "Best friend". The second video, which has been released sequentially since July 12, is the "best friend version" featuring Hanamor Yumiri. It's not the voice of Hanamori-san that you hear as soon as it starts playing, and for a moment you think, "Huh”. At the café where you met up with your best friend “ (CV Mamoru Hanamori), you were waiting to have tea with an employee from your part-time job who was voiced by “that popular voice actor ”. Your best friend said that she admires the senior employee at her part-time job. "She's wondering what she needs to do to become a wonderful person like that”, and you suggest that she studies fashion. Then she says, "By the way, I saw a really cute makeup video the other day. Let's watch it together." She pulls out a pair of earphones from her bag, which are exactly the same as the ones you are using. "She pulls out from her bag the exact same earphones you are using. “ATH-SQ1TW”, and even the color is the same, it’s a miracle. “We really like the same things, don't we?" The cheerful and lively voice of Hanamori-san cheered the listeners up too! The video was fixed so that only the person's hands were shown, and the video was created completely with only the voice of Hanamori-san (plus the employee at her part-time job). Her voice alone is enough to convey the situation and the emotions of her best friend, but combined with the “hand expressions”, the video is even more realistic. After a lively conversation about the earphones, you might think you're going to see a makeup video, but there's a scene where you can't help but giggle at your best friend's …… "food more than sex" attitude. The video makes you feel like you're really having a good conversation with your best friend, so be sure to check it out. The next video, "Sisters" by Sakura Ayane, will be released on Tuesday, July 20 at 6:00 p.m., so look forward to it!

Your boyfriend (CV: Ono-san) is talking about his favorite video of a puppy, and you enjoy a good laugh while watching it. He sees your face, and shyly says "Your smile is the best". He seems to have something to tell you...... Also, please do not miss the familiar voice of a staff that brings café au lait to the table, disturbing such important words! He started again, saying "This time for sure!", and put the wireless earbuds "ATH-SQ1TW" in front of you. He gave it to you as "a token of his gratitude", but there seems to be a certain reason to have chosen the earbuds...... The video was fixed and recorded to show only the hands, and only Ono-san (+ a cafe staff) speaks in the video. Ono-san's voice solely can convey the situation and the boyfriend's feelings, but the "hands expressions" make the video immersive even more. Ono-san's "...Kawaii (...Cute)" in his sweet voice would make you blush. The video gives you a feeling of being on a date with him, so please try watching it. After the scene where he gave the earbuds, you can listen to "bonus voice" in addition to "Kawaii"! Next time, we are going to introduce the "best friend" version by Hanamori Yumiri.

Last time, Anime! Anime! presented the second part of the interview project with the original author and editor of "Isekai (Fantasy) Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to", which also won 1st place in the Access ranking! This time, it is an interview with Tsurusaki Yuu, who is in charge of the story of this work, a.k.a. "Ojiisan Fa Bimeiku", and we talked about its "distorted nature" and "interesting because the setting is crazy"! This work is an original manga serialized in the manga app "Cycomics" operated by "Cygames", which has been producing hit titles such as "Uma Musume Pretty Derby". This manga has some harsh words in the title, but with the support of enthusiastic fans, this popular title received an anime adaptation only after a year and a half after the serialization has been started! We will approach the original author's thoughts on animation and ambitions at the time of planning the popular "Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to"! "I'm glad" that an anime adaptation has been decided and "I think my nature was recognized by the world." ――First of all, please tell us your feelings when an anime adaptation has been decided. Tsurusaki: To be honest, "relieved" is the best. Actually, there was a discussion about animating my other manga before, but in the end, it got stuck... When I heard from the editor in charge that "An anime project has been brought in" this time, I wasn't expecting much because it might be posh again at first. Then, from the place when it was said "The probability of the release os about 30%", it gradually increased to 50% and 70%, and finally, the animation has been announced. At the time of the cast audition, when I heard how voice actors read their lines, I was very embarrassed, but I finally realized it little by little (laughs). ――At the beginning of the series, it was commented that "I want to distort someone's nature", but now that the animation has been announced, has that ambition come true? Tsurusaki: Certainly, I thought "I want to distort someone's nature" (laughs). * Episode 1 Author's comment The niche work "A slapstick romantic comedy of a 32-year-old adult man who incarnates the body of a beautiful girl in a different world and his best friend, a 32-year-old classmate who is an ideal man in glasses" has reached the point of an anime adaptation. I'm starting to think, "Wasn't it the goal?" (Laughs) ――Certainly, even now when the cast has not been announced (at the time of the interview), considering that there are more than 2000 followers on the official account, it may be distorting the nature of quite a lot of people. "Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to" is "The story of the heroes of the same generation sent by the team of the same generation." ――This time, let's talk about the outline of "Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to". The main characters, Tachibana and Jinguji, are 32 years old, so why did you set this age? Tsurusaki: Actually, since I'm about the same age when characters talk, it's easiest to imagine what they are talking about because I'm the same age myself. By the way, Ikezawa-san, the illustrator, and Ada-san, the editor in charge, are all of the same age. Perhaps because it is made by such a team of the same generation, it seems that the fans of "Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to" are also that old. And in fact, the background of people who are in charge of the manga and people who are in charge of the anime "Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to" are of the same generation (laughs). ――It really feels like a story of the main characters of the same generation by a team of the same generation! Speaking of settings, this work is quite unique among isekai titles, so please tell us the story about how this project was born! Tsurusaki: When I was discussing a new project with the editor in charge, I was asked, "Is there something in an isekai genre?" Speaking of genres, "Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to" is a romantic comedy, but I think I would never have released it if I was told, "Please give me a romantic comedy" (laughs). However, at first, I was reluctant to edit. When I was asked "Are there any catchphrases?", and said, "Well... a beautiful girl in a different world, old man...?" Since then, it has been serialized, and thanks to everyone, it has been well received from the beginning, but since there is no precedent for other works in terms of such setting, it is not possible to refer to something as a model. So I am experiencing the pain creating every chapter. ――Please tell us if there is a character set that Tsurusaki-san thought about, or if there is a character that behaves differently than originally expected! Tsurusaki: Well, as for the creating process, Tachibana is a character that many people, including myself, can easily empathize with, and Jinguji is a character that no one can empathize with. The character who made unexpected movements is Shuba-kun. Originally I intended to make him an underdog, but on the contrary, he has become a puppy character-like, energetic Wanwan (laughs). It wasn't like that in the initial assumption. But it's easy to move and I've grown more than I expected. On the contrary, it is Lu (the head of the elves) who does not change. My dream, when I was in elementary school, was to be a "manga artist", and when I realized it, I became an anime author together with my spouse. ――This time, I would like to ask you a little more private part. Tsurusaki-sensei, did you originally like anime? Tsurusaki: Well, I've always liked anime. My parents used to play NES when I was a child, so I played games all the time. From there, I was derived between manga and anime. When I was in elementary school, I wanted to be a manga artist. ――In terms of anime, what kind of work do you like? Tsurusaki: After all, "Neon Genesis Evangelion" is the best. Also, my personal favorites are "Haibane Renmei", "Cowboy Bebop", and "Rurouni Kenshin: Reflection". Recently, I also like season 1 of the anime "Rage of Bahamut"! ――Tsurusaki-sensei, who loves such masterpiece anime titles, can become the original anime author! By the way, what kind of encounter did you have with Ikezawa-sensei, who is in charge of drawing "Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to"? Tsurusaki: Actually, Ikezawa-sensei and I were classmates at the vocational school. I've loved Ikezawa-sensei's paintings since that time, and in a nutshell, the 3D effect was fascinating. Do you say that there is a vividness of standing in the world of the painting? I was aiming for a picture of that kind of style, but couldn't reach it. In that sense, I longed for it. I also like Ikezawa-sensei's paintings, but I simply fell in love with Ikezawa-sensei when I was a student... Then he confessed and we started dating, and now we are writing manga as a married couple. ――You two are a married couple! It's wonderful to be anime authors as a couple now because of your relationship since you were students! Is there any scene you are looking forward to about the anime adaptation of "Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to" made by these two people? Tsurusaki: Speaking of fun scenes, there is a scene where Jinguji says a long line in the part recorded in the 5th volume of the comic, but I'm really looking forward to how it will be animated I'm also looking forward to seeing what the OP and ED will look like! The next goals are "Season 2, animated movie, game!" ――The serialization by Cycomics has been announced, and the anime adaptation will be released. What is your next goal? Tsurusaki: After all, it is about "Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to" receiving season 2 of anime and an animated movie. I'm wondering if there will be a game after that. There aren't enough characters for "Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to" alone, so I wonder if we can collaborate with other works by connecting with Cygames! ――Finally, please give a message to your fans! Tsurusaki: Thank you for your continued support! ――Thank you very much! ―――― "Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to" is on the manga app "Cycomics". Comics 1 to 4 volumes are also on sale. Volume 5 has been released on October 18. Information about anime is being posted on official Twitter at any time. PV, teaser visual, main cast, etc. are released at 08:00 P.M. on October 18.

TV anime “My Hero Academia” is on broadcast from 5:30 PM of every Saturday on Yomiuri TV and 29 Japan TV channels. The 2nd cour of Season 5 is about to reach its climax, while “villain vs. villain” warfare gets fiercer between the League of VillainsVillain Alliance and Meta Liberation ArmyParanormal Liberation Front. Now, the hidden past of Shigaraki Tomura is to be revealed…! Here at Anime!Anime!, we conducted the interview on Uchiyama Koki, who plays Shigaraki Tomura in MHA. Five years have passed since the beginning of the TV series, and we asked how Shigaraki Tomura was created through the process of becoming “the ruler of villains”. [Interview and shooting by: Yoshino Konosuke] Forming the character from the manga that is in the middle of serialization ---Five years is about to pass since the beginning of the TV series Season 1. Do you have any impressive scenes or scenes of change for Shigaraki Tomura compared to the beginning? Uchiyama: I believe there are changes in him, including his appearance, but I prefer the idea that he is in current position by experiencing various event, rather than experiencing one important event, so I both can agree with those feeling change and not feeling any change. The Villain Alliance characters appeared in the story with the important episodes, so I had to do my best every time he appeared. Their appearance is the same as climax. Shigaraki and his comrades first appeared in USJ attack incident from Season 1, and they took a long break because of the episodes mainly focused on U.A.Yuei High School, including the athletic day. That is why every scene with him is memorable. ---If we would focus on the change in target and activity, “retirement of All Might” is the turning point for Shigaraki. Uchiyama; Exactly. He eventually finds out that everything of him is related to All Might after analyzing about himself, and the retirement of All Might was the big event for him, since All Might’s existence was the motivation for him. ---How did you created Shigaraki through acting? Uchiyama: Direction I received in the beginning was “he is talking to someone, but his response should sound like as he is talking to himself”. Maybe it meant some unpleasant feeling that he cannot communicate with others. ---I know that you have opportunities to play “the villain with tremendous power”, including Melem from “HUNTER x HUNTER”, and where do you feel abnormality of Shigaraki compared to your previous characters? Uchiyama: Melem is “the Ant King”, not human, and he is the special being from beginning so he feels a rapid growth from his birth to the climax. He is often focused on noble atmosphere of a king and pureness of a child, but that should be different from Shigaraki because Shigaraki is a human. Shigaraki’s past is about to be broadcast on TV. He experiences “an accident” in the environment he grew up and that leads to his current situation. On the premise of his family situation, thinking about how he would think and talk is the normal thing to do in acting. However, the manga in the middle of serialization does not allow me to do it. MHA anime started when Shigaraki’s past was completely hidden, therefore, update was required with information given at the certain moment. ---I see. Information is limited to the serializing manga and there are things that assumption is not allowed. Uchiyama: For example, some characters first appear as the villains but turned out to be the nice supporting characters, while others decide to side with the protagonists. I could fail if I started to playing him as a complete villain. On the other hand, being neutral was not my choice. Playing the character from the serializing manga is “a task without answer”. That is why I have to find the best choice at each scene and is important to take in ideas of staff. I was “creating the character with all members”. It is a form of enjoyment because I cannot predict the future. This is the importance of the manga in the middle of serialization. Performing the story beyond the prediction now on TV ---From the perspective of Shigaraki, how the relationship of the Villain Alliance members could look like? Uchiyama: Compared to when he was fighting with Kurogiri and Nomu at USJ attack, the new members have entered, including Toga Himiko and Chabi, and the size of the Villain Alliance got larger, but they don’t look like the best friends. They belong to a mysterious circle. ---He also look like grew up as a hero. How did your recording session progressed when playing the past of Shigaraki in the upcoming episodes? Uchiyama: Shigaraki’s past being revealed this time is not a heart-warming story, and it was difficult and painful to forming the lines with his sad past. This kind pain is usual in my job but is still hard. ---May I have the message to your fans with the important points in the upcoming episodes. Uchiyama: I understand that the fans are waiting for Deku’s stories after watching multiple “My Villain Academia”-like episodes, but please keep enjoying a few more episodes. I never expected this kind of story is progressed at the beginning of the anime. This is the fun part of the manga in serialization and please enjoy the story beyond the prediction now as the TV anime. © Horikoshi Kohei/Shueisha, My Hero Academia Production Committee
September 13 is Kayano Ai-san's birthday. She debuted as a voice actor in 2010 and won the Best Rookie Actor Award in the 6th Seiyu Awards. In 2021, she is in various titles including, "Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation", "Girls und Panzer das Finale" Episode 3, and the "ARIA" series. She also released a memorial book & mini-album "Musunde Hiraite" in March to commemorate the 10th anniversary of her debut as a voice actor. To celebrate her birthday, we conducted the same readers' survey as last year asking, "Who's Your Favorite Character Voiced by Kayano Ai-san?" There were 312 votes during the survey period from August 30 to September 6. Most of the voters were male with a gender ratio of 70% male to 30% female, and the age range was on the younger side with 35% under 20 and 35% in their 20s. ■"SAO" Alice tops the list! Characters below 2nd place changed their rankings! 1st Place Alice from "Sword Art Online Alicization" topped the list with 14% of the votes, keeping her at the top for 3 years in a row. Fans supported her for being a fighting heroine with comments like, "Throughout the series, she portrayed every element of Alice, her strength, kindness, and cuteness," and "I had the impression that Kayano-san plays cute characters, but when she played the dignified and powerful Alice, she became a character I admire." The fact that she was in a long-running series, 4 seasons in total including "War of Underworld", is another reason why she left a strong impression on her fans. 2nd Place 2nd place went to Menma from "Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day" with roughly 11% of the votes, moving her up from 5th place last year. Menma is a childhood friend who suddenly appears in front of Jintan, a high school student who isolates himself from society. The girl with a secret received comments such as, "I love Menma's unique squishy smile, and she has the most wonderful voice I've ever heard in an anime!", and "How she portrays Menma's true feelings that gradually get revealed towards the last episode and how she expresses her emotions is so amazing." By the way, 2021 is the 10th anniversary year of the broadcast. There were also many comments celebrating the shows 10th anniversary, "I'm happy I got to see Menma after all these years in the special program, radio, and the reading at the event to celebrate the 10th anniversary!" and "As I re-watched the anime from the beginning for the 10th anniversary, I realized once again that this show will never fade away." 3rd Place Kasumigaoka Utaha took 3rd place with roughly 9% of the votes, moving down from 2nd place last year. "The best sadistic, dark-haired heroine! And yet, she's also cute when she's being a chicken," "Her yandere voice and fragile kindness are wonderful. Kayano-san is the only one who can play Utaha senpai," and "I love her dark long hair and big sister character. I'm hoping that "Koisuru Metronome", which follows Utaha senpai as the protagonist, receives an anime adaptation!" are comments that show how the gap between her sharp tongue and her vulnerable side she occasionally shows melted the hearts of so many fans. ■Here are some comments for other characters! For Darkness from "KonoSuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World!", "A delusional female warrior is completely different from the characters she played in the past, but she pulled it off, showing her wide range of acting and talent." For Juliet Persia from "Boarding School Juliet", "She's earnest, kind, and her single-minded love is so cute. At the same time, she also has a dignified side aiming straight towards her goal, making her full of charms." For Saeki Sayaka from "Bloom Into You", "Kayano-san's cool voice is perfect for Sayaka. Although she seems to be cool and intelligent, I could feel the subtle and bittersweet emotions of her suppressing her feelings for her love and trying to stay as friends." There were also votes for the title which just had its latest commercial for the original novel released. For Shiro from "No Game No Life", "I love Shiro's cute whisper voice. It's amazing how she sings the ending theme in her voice!", and "Her voice hasn't changed in the newly released commercial, and it made me fascinated by her again." While "SAO" Alice is strong in the 2021 survey, titles that had new developments, such as "Anohana", which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and "No Game No Life", which released its latest commercial, moved up the ranking. ■Top 20 "Who's Your Favorite Character Voiced by Kayano Ai-san? 2021 Edition" 1.
